MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC Compute Related Benchmarks

We are going to compare the GeForce RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC Edition to our growing GPU data set.

Geekbench 4

Geekbench 4 measures the compute performance of your GPU using image processing to computer vision to number crunching.

Our first compute benchmark, and we see the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC, we can see the OpenCL, and CUDA performance compares to last-gen RTX 2080 Ti.

LuxMark

LuxMark is an OpenCL benchmark tool based on LuxRender.

In LuxMark, a single MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC can surpass our Titan RTX and Quadro RTX 8000. In LuxMark, the RTX 3070 shows outstanding performance well beyond what we see in many other benchmarks.

AIDA64 GPGPU

These benchmarks are designed to measure GPGPU computing performance via different OpenCL workloads.

  • Single-Precision FLOPS: Measures the classic MAD (Multiply-Addition) performance of the GPU, otherwise known as FLOPS (Floating-Point Operations Per Second), with single-precision (32-bit, “float”) floating-point data.
  • Double-Precision FLOPS: Measures the classic MAD (Multiply-Addition) performance of the GPU, otherwise known as FLOPS (Floating-Point Operations Per Second), with double-precision (64-bit, “double”) floating-point data.

The next set of benchmarks from AIDA64 are:

  • 24-bit Integer IOPS: Measures the classic MAD (Multiply-Addition) performance of the GPU, otherwise known as IOPS (Integer Operations Per Second), with 24-bit integer (“int24”) data. This particular data type defined in OpenCL on the basis that many GPUs are capable of executing int24 operations via their floating-point units.
  • 32-bit Integer IOPS: Measures the classic MAD (Multiply-Addition) performance of the GPU, otherwise known as IOPS (Integer Operations Per Second), with 32-bit integer (“int”) data.
  • 64-bit Integer IOPS: Measures the classic MAD (Multiply-Addition) performance of the GPU, otherwise known as IOPS (Integer Operations Per Second), with 64-bit integer (“long”) data. Most GPUs do not have dedicated execution resources for 64-bit integer operations, so instead, they emulate the 64-bit integer operations via existing 32-bit integer execution units.

The takeaway here is the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC performs better on the FP workloads than the Turing series but falls into the cluster of RTX 2080 (Super) scores on the integer side.

hashcat64

hashcat64 is a password cracking benchmarks that can run an impressive number of different algorithms. We used the windows version and a simple command of hashcat64 -b. Out of these results, we used five results in the graph. Users who are interested in hashcat can find the download here.

Hashcat can put a heavy load on GPU’s, and here we see the dual-fan graphics cards have the edge in our results. However, with the cooling system used on the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC, Hashcat heat loads are easily handled with tri-fan setups. Here we get performance between the RTX 2080 and 2080 Super.

SPECviewperf 13

SPECviewperf 13 measures the 3D graphics performance of systems running under the OpenGL and Direct X application programming interfaces.

As drivers improve, we should see continued performance increases in this benchmark. In the first chart for SPECviewperf, we find the MSI RTX 3070 Ventus 3x OC compares nicely to the RTX 2080 Ti series but does have a slight edge in some aspects.

Let us move on and start our new tests with rendering-related benchmarks.

  1. Hey that’s the card the card I was able to find and got it for $525 at microcenter. Last one in stock woot! It completed the missing piece to my build. Wish the card had light though, don’t care for rgb but a nice lit up RTX would be cool.

  2. Thanks William, an excellent comparison that we’ve been waiting for.

    Shouldn’t the article have a Tag for “compute”, and it would be helpful (for search) to have “compute” in the article’s title.

    Also, the “Arion v2.5” benchmark would benefit from adding a few CPUs; for comparison.

    We really appreciate seeing how much to decide to spend, and which card we should consider for compute applications.
